1 Memoranda Soc. Fauna Flora Fennica 88, 88: Kunttu 2012et al. 61 New national and regional biological records for Finland 2. Contributions to the Finnish aphyllophoroid funga (Basidiomycota) Panu Kunttu, Matti Kulju & Heikki Kotiranta Kunttu, P., University of Eastern Finland, School of Forest Sciences, P.O. Box 111, FI Joensuu, Finland; Kulju, M., Ylispuuntie 13, FI Oulu, Finland; Kotiranta, H., Finnish Environment Institute, P.O. Box 140, FI Helsinki, Finland; Athelicium hallenbergii, Tomentella albomarginata, Tomentella cinereoumbrina, Tubulicrinopsis granulose and Tulasnella calospora are reported as new to Finland. New records of Lindtneria chordulata, Phlebia cremeoalutacea, Tomentella coerulea, Tomentella terrestris, Tomentellopsis zygodesmoides, Trechispora araneosa, Trechispora caucasica, Trechispora minima and nine other little collected species are presented and notes of their substrates are given. Many of these records were made in Southwestern Finland, from the forested islands of the Archipelago Sea. In addition we list 33 aphyllophoroid fungi as new to some section of the boreal vegetation zone in Finland. Introduction A check-list of Finnish aphyllophoroid fungi was published in 2009 (Kotiranta et al. 2009). After that plenty of knowledge has accumulated and new records were published by Kunttu et al. 2009, 2010, Here we report new records including five species new to Finland, 17 little collected species with only few records earlier in Finland, as well as 33 aphyllophoroid fungi new to some section of boreal vegetation zone in Finland. We have included also species which already have been reported from Finland, but since they are in taxonomical articles they are easily buried. Material and methods Many of the records are made by Panu Kunttu (PK) during the years as a part of large scale biogeographical and ecological research on aphyllophoroid fungi in Archipelago Sea. All these collections were made from the hemiboreal zone in the biogeographic province of Regio Aboënsis (Ab). The specimens were identified by Matti Kulju (MK), Heikki Kotiranta (HKta) and Urmas Kõljalg (UK). Other material was collected by several researchers: HA = Heikki Anttila, VH = Veli Haikonen, PH = Pekka Halonen, PKe = Panu Keihäs, KK = Kari Kukko-oja, HKta = Heikki Kotiranta, HK = Heino Kulju, MK = Matti Kulju, PK = Panu Kunttu, MO = Martti Ohenoja, TN = Tuomo Niemelä, RP = Reijo Penttilä, TR = Tapio Rintanen, S-MR = Sanna-Mari Rivasto, MS = Marko Sievänen, JS = Jari Särkkä, US = Unto Söderholm, TT = Tiiu Tenno and HV = Henry Väre. The aims of these studies varies but are mostly connected with species inventories of certain areas or ecology of polypores and corticioids.

2 62 Kunttu et al. Memoranda Soc. Fauna Flora Fennica 88, 2012 Finnish national uniform grid system (27 E) according to Heikinheimo and Raatikainen (1981) was used for coordinates and biogeographic provinces according to Hansen & Knudsen (1997). UCS = Uniform Coordinate System. Boreal and hemiboreal vegetation zones consist of 11 sections which are used in this article (Ahti et al. 1968, Hämet-Ahti 1981). The maps of the sections can be found in, e.g., Kotiranta et al. (2009, p. 7) and Rassi et al. (2010, p. 27). Voucher specimens are deposited in the herbaria of the Universities of Helsinki (H), Turku (TUR), Tartu (TU), Oulu (OULU) and/or in the reference herbarium of Heikki Kotiranta (H.Kta). Nomenclature of the genus Hyphodontia sensu lato follows Hjortstam & Ryvarden (2009) and others mainly Kotiranta et al. (2009). The Finnish national red-listing evaluation of IUCS Red List Categories are according to Kotiranta et al. (2010). The decay stage classification of trunks is according to Renvall (1995). Results and discussion In this paper we report five species new to Finland, new records of 17 little collected species, as well as 33 species new to some section of boreal vegetation zone in Finland. Species are presented in alphabetic order. The number of new species to some section of boreal vegetation zone divide as follows: Hemiboreal, Åland (1a) 2, Hemiboreal, Oak zone (1b) 5, Southern boreal, Southwestern Finland and Southern Ostrobothnia (2a) 1, Southern boreal, Lake district (2b) 2, Middle boreal, Ostrobothnia (3a) 12, Middle boreal, Northern Carelia Kainuu (3b) 1, Middle boreal, Southwestern Lapland (3c) 7, Northern boreal, North Ostrobothnia (4b) 2 and Northern boreal, Fjeld Lapland (4d) 1.
